    Hopefully the current workaround for the RLK/NZM callsigns FR24 have implimented doesn't need too much of a massage

    Entire regional air new zealand fleet is changing from the current NZMxxxx and RKL flights to purely NZ8 and NZ5 like it use to be before ADSB smarts.

    Something to be aware of that is on the horizon if you are Planeplotter user - Some NZ ISPs are starting to bump people to a technology called CG-NAT
    Where you no longer get a public IPv4 address. But a local-network like one from the ISP. And the data from the internet is stopped before it gets to you and only information you first requested is sent to your router.

    What does that mean? No more data from the internet back to your machine on non-standard ports directly without requesting it first.
    That is - No Master User status or RAW MLAT results in Planeplotter
    No local web page hosting (Dump1090 from internet etc)
    No remote control of your machines (without a 3rd party cloud solution)


    Most Wireless based ISPs will have this already (and mobile providers)
    And now 2Degrees has announced it is on the horizon.

    Despite most people being on a public IP now, and not costing any more - can likely expect the normal charge of $10 a month extra to keep it (but yet to see what 2D come up with)

    Thanks Baz that is a helpfull web site, I send data to FR24 and also Flight aware now, My antennas are now over 9 metres, and max distance tracked is 150 nm, I cant get more because of the mountains. Can I ask what sort of range do you get there?

    Hi Peter
    I am in a similar situation to you with mountains around ,my range is around 160nm to the north and northwest so I see a lot of inbound traffic into NZQN on my receiver.
    I imagine theres not many adsb equiped aircraft operating in the TeAnau area yet,I am seeing more helicopters and sightseeing aircraft operating out of NZQN and NZWF appearing on FR24 maybe pressure from Airways for them to equip.
    Having receivers in Milford and another in Glenorchy T-NZQN3 has helped improve coverage over that way.
    Regards

    Landed. Unknown diversion. Boards have it leaving in the AM

    If I read it right the front is due with 30kt gusts through peaks. So probably a bit unstable on the way down

    No true ADSB transponders. Likely mode-S only (or older modeC)

    So you only get height and not position.

    I am new and set up with rasp pi and 8 metre antenna, I was interested to follow helicopter movements around here, I am a few hundred metres from Southern Lakes Helicopters Hanger, and have many flights a day passing our house each day and some nights. The gliders are maybe just out of range or maybe altitude a bit low for me.

    I should add that I do recognise some of the local traffic,on the pi, but nothing seems to show on FR24
